Hello, I'm planning to upgrade my WiFi card, which one should I buy? And is there any "whitelist" they call with this laptop I own? 

I found a similar question here but the person who asked did not respond to the person who answered his question, so I don't know if it worked or not. 
This is the particular card I found here but I am not sure with the HP part # because what I see on the online shop has different number, which was mentioned at the end of the post. Are there two HP part #?

I hope someone can answer this, thank you in advance!

Hi:

 

Yes, that really is the only Wi-Fi card you can easily upgrade to since your notebook only has one antenna wire.

 

The part numbers are interchangeable.  Either part number would work.  If you can, get the L17365-005

 

Any other dual band Wi-Fi cards would require two antennas, or the Bluetooth wouldn't work.

 

Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the wifi card removal and replacement procedure.

This is one of the many replies I have given for folks to upgrade the single band M.2 cards with one antenna to dual band cards...

Oh, icic, thank you very much. I've been hesitating to order the adapter because of that part number. 
Anyways, this was really helpful, thank you so much for the enlightenment Sir 😊

You're very welcome.

 

Please post back and let us know how your notebook's wifi card upgrade project went.

 

Be very careful when removing and reattaching the very thin and delicate antenna wire.

 

Here is a service video for how to remove and replace a M.2 card with one antenna.

 

This is from a different model notebook, but it shows you the tools required and whatnot.

 

Your notebook's Wi-Fi card may not have a plastic cover over it.
